Table 4 Type of cardiovascular events and cause of death in hemodialysis patients

From: Strong predictive value of mannose-binding lectin levels for cardiovascular risk of hemodialysis patients

Cardiovascular events
  Acute coronary syndrome CABG/PCI Congestive heart failure Sudden death CVA Peripheral vascular disease
Low MBL levels 4 (15 %) 5 (19 %) 0 (0 %) 2 (8 %) 2 (8 %) 4 (15 %)
High MBL levels 4 (5 %) 5 (6 %) 3 (4 %) 3 (4 %) 2 (2 %) 8 (10 %)
  1. Data are given as an absolute number of cardiovascular events or cause of death and as a percentage (%) of the total number of HD patients in each MBL group
